THE BRONX - A dilapidated staircase on Summit Place is leading to injuries, residents say.

It's between Bailey and Heath avenues, and residents say many people have twisted ankles or worse on the cracked and crumbling concrete.

Last June, the city's Department of Design and Construction told News 12 it would fix the staircase.

Residents say the city did make limited but inadequate repairs.

City Councilman Fernando Cabrera, responding to a resident on Twitter, said repairs on the staircase are a top priority this spring.
